3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with quickly disappearing head. Wheaty and slight yeasty aroma. Flavour is the same and has a slight citric and orange addition. Finish is citrus fruity. Ok hefe-weizen but nothing great.

Hazy golden. Clean, well-balanced with some banana, vanilla, marshmallow character. Off-dry finish. Yeasty, maybe even coriander accent. Well-made but it didn’t captivate me.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Tons of lace that follows a yellow body with noticeable white head. Creamy mouthfeel, clean and refreshing taste. Good example of the style. Fresh aroma.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A standard crisp Hefeweizen that sticks to the basics of the style. Well brewed but very standard.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose shows stripped-down basic hefe beer elements with wheat and some banana esters. Taste is a hefe without bells and whistles. Almost no spiciness, orange peels or any other occasional hefe flavour elements. Nice body with a lot of wheat with a moderate banana flavour. Pleasantly not sweet. Very clean and crisp and refreshing. Really basic except for a more-than-average floral hopping. Semi-dry finish. This is a well done clean refreshing beer but it also exactly like too many others. This brewery makes some world class beer but this one won’t win any medals. Or maybe it will. But not in the 100 meter dash. I’m sure of that.

Draught at the brewpub. Very spicy, though natural, with a nice citric edge, though from esters, not American hops. Rich banana, great balance. Some hops in there as well. Big spice. Great stuff with excellent balance. Tingly, slightly bitter, peppery finish.
